Introduction

To be honest, fog lights is not the most important thing in the world, however it do look awesome on the car and it do have some sort of status. I also do love the cornering lights.


Time

2-3 hours


Installation & Guide

The installation was done by Cartrends.dk (Denmark)

Well, I did not install the fog lights myself, but if anyone wants to give it a try I found the below guides and converted.

Parts Purchase

I decided to purchase the light switch and BCM (Body Control Module) as second hand. The fog lights kit was purchased from Cartrends.dk (Denmark) where both fog lights, surroundings, cables, bulbs and screws were included.

Body Control Module
All "Highend" modules supports fog lights.
8P0-907-279: 17 Byte (Basis)
8P0-907-279-A: 17 Byte (Highend)
8P0-907-279-B: 21 Byte (Basis)
8P0-907-279-C: 21 Byte (Highend)
8P0-907-279-D: 17 Byte (Highend)
8P0-907-279-E: 23 Byte (Basis)
8P0-907-279-F: 23 Byte (Highend)
8P0-907-279-H: 24 Byte (Highend)
8P0-907-279-J: 30 Byte (Basis)
8P0-907-279-K: 30 Byte (Highend)
8P0-907-279-L: 30 Byte (Highend)
8P0-907-279-M: 30 Byte (Basis)
8P0-907-279-N: 30 Byte (Highend)
8P0-907-279-P: 30 Byte (Highend)
8P0-907-279-Q: 30 Byte (Highend)

Be aware that it is not an easy swap with the BCM. I had a 30 byte basis module myself and changed it to a 30 byte highend module.

Light Switch
Was purchased at Bildelsbasen (Sweden), but you can also find it at ebay, etc.

Please do compare with your present light switch and be aware that it should be 100% the same except for the extra fog light icon. So you cannot be sure that the same part number I used fits your car.

Fog Light Kit
I purchased the entire kit from Cartrends.dk (Denmark). I believe they purchase from kufatec anyways.


Usage

Well, there is not that much to say about the usage.

1) You turn the switch all the way to the right (same place as the interior lights powers on)
2) Pull it out once and the front fog lights will power on.
3) Pull it out twice and the rear fog lights will power on.
